In what increasingly looks like a facsimile of updates on the defence of Bagdad in 2003, Duff and Phelps continue to accentuate the positives about the potential bidders for Rangers Football Club or its assets but the charade is finally running out of acts.
This afternoon’s withdrawal of interest by the Blue Knight (singular), Paul Murray, the accountant who was a director of Rangers during the hugely controversial EBT years, and Brian Kennedy, should allow minds to focus on the most important question, what next?
Here’s a prediction for you:
Rangers Football Club will play their last game on Sunday 13 May 2012. One day next week, possibly even before the appeal against the SFA Disciplinary Tribunal punishment, one, or perhaps more, of the prominent players who have been jockeying for position recently will commence proceedings to buy a club in the Scottish Football League, or form a new club, ask for permission to play at Airdrie or Paisley, and apply for SFA membership. If membership is granted, an application will be lodged to join the Scottish Football League as soon as a vacancy becomes available.
In time Craig Whyte will sell or otherwise lose control of Ibrox Stadium, and if it is still in an operable condition, the football team hoping to profit from the demise of Rangers will look to acquire rights to play there.
You have witnessed an incredible period of Scottish social history in recent months.
